Acclaimed actor Nour El Cherif here plays Egyptian filmmaker Yehia Mourad some thirty years after we last see him in "Alexandria, Why?" Though successful in his work, Yehia has grown distant from his wife and children and suﬀers a symbolic blockage of the heart while shooting the final scenes of his latest film.
